Climbing to Financial Success

It appears as though we are slowly but steadily climbing out of the financial crisis. Things are looking positive, with strength returning to the financial industry and established technologies given more room to grow. The International Monetary Fund says that it continues to expect a modest upturn in global growth in 2013, with fewer risks of major policy mistakes and lower levels of financial stress.

It appears as though start-ups are going to be leading us in this ascent. Policy makers passed (with broad bipartisan support) the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act (JOBS Act) in 2012 to make it easier for start-ups and entrepreneurs to raise capital through crowd – funding and other means. This week, in his State of the Union address, President Obama outlined plans to build a stronger America, including actions to help entrepreneurs and small business owners expand. With wider adoption and decreasing cost of mobile and cloud computing are making it easier and cheaper to start and grow businesses anywhere in the nation.

What does this mean for start-ups? “If crisis risks do not materialize and financial conditions continue to improve, global growth could be stronger than projected,” the Washington-based fund said in its economic report. Lots of start-ups are moving into the enterprise software business and positioning them selves to either go public or be acquired with this growth. Oracle (ORCL), IBM (IBM), Hewlett-Packard (HPQ), and Dell could choose sooner rather than later to acquire their way into new growth markets, says Brian Marshall, an analyst with International Strategy & Investment. There are a lot of game changers making big moves out there with this new financial upturn and start-ups will be smart to jump on board sooner rather than later……..
